1 Hardware Universe OverviewHardware Universe (HWU) is a web-based tool that replaced the NetApp System Configuration Guide,providing you with a visual presentation of the complete NetApp line of hardware products. HWU alsoreplaces the NetApp Site Requirements Guide, which included controller information on a variety ofchassis details: electrical requirements in worst-case and typical situation, clearance information,temperature ranges, humidity levels, altitude parameters, acoustic noise. and more.HWU is a powerful configuration resource for NetApp employees, partners, and customers byconsolidating hardware specifications for the following products and components. Platforms: FAS, All-Flash FAS, V-Series, ONTAP-v, E-Series, FlashRay and SA Series Adapters: FAS, V-Series, E-Series and SA Series Shelves: ONTAP, SANtricity and MARS Drives: ONTAP, SANtricity and MARS Cabinets: power configurations, 3 -party rackmount kits Switches: Cluster, MetroCluster and SAN Cables: data cables, power cordsrdYou can also make side-by-side comparisons of the various platforms in terms of system capacity,memory size, maximum spindle count, and other features, allowing you to decide which platforms willmeet your requirements.In addition, you can save your personal queries for re-use, or draw from your last 20 queries. This is ahandy way to revisit your favorite configurations over time.Finally, you can download printable PDF files of the many configurations, based on OS.1.1RequirementsTo view the Hardware Universe you can use any of the following browsers and operating systems: 1.2Supported browsers Internet Explorer 8 Firefox 10 Safari 5 Google Chrome 18 Opera 11 Supported desktop operating systems: Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8 Mac OS 10.6 LinuxSupported mobile operating systems: Apple iOS Google AndroidSupported NetApp Software VersionsHardware Universe supplies hardware configuration information for Data ONTAP versions 7.2 and later,and Data ONTAP 7-Mode and Clustered Data ONTAP versions 8.0 and later.4Hardware Universe User Guide

Current Sectional PDFs – for your convenience, you can select from a variety of pre-configuredhardware “sectionals” in PDF format. These sectionals are organized by Data ONTAP, SANtricityor MARS versions within each expandable pane. They are terrific “leave behinds” for customers.PDF Download Options:1. The entire set of PDFs for all Data ONTAP, SANtricity or MARS versions by using eachDownload All link at the top of the quadrant.2. A bundled PDF for a given Data ONTAP version, SANtricity version, or MARS version. Scrollthrough the available versions and click a Download All link.3. A single PDF for an individual adapter card or a controller, based on a given Data ONTAPversion, SANtricity version, or MARS version. Simply expand a version pane and scrollthrough the available options and select one.10 My Recent Queries – this quadrant displays up to 20 of your most recent HWU queries. Clickthe title of a query to display its configuration in the HWU interface. You can click Details to viewthe specifications before opening the query.

The final results provide you with all related adapters, shelves, drives and more,that you need for a complete integrated system. Alternatively, you can explore the other menu options foradapters/shelves/drives/etc. to find both specific and integrated component data.The Platforms tab allows you access to information about the supported platforms by OS or by platform.1. Hover over the Platforms tab in the menu bar and select a platform option from the drop-down menu.For example, select FAS/V-Series.2. The Filters page then allows you to select the method of configuring your system. You can selectStart with OS or Start with Platforms.3. Start with OS – This is the default option.a. Use the Filter OS search box to quickly find an OS that you seek. Example filter strings: 8.2.x,8.3rc1, cluster-mode.b. Select one or more OS versions. The Platform Model pane displays with a tree of supportedplatforms.Hardware Universe User Guide11

c. By default, the tree shows models that support at least one of the OS versions, as indicatedby the radio button labeled that support at least one of the OS selected. If you select the radio button labeled that support all the OS selected, then the treerefreshes to show models that support all selected OS versions. Special Note: The Show All radio button lists all the models for the chosen platform,regardless of OS support. Unsupported models are grayed out in the tree. Hover yourmouse over a grayed-out model to see its supported OS information. To further refine the scope of the platform list, you can select Remove EOA Platforms. Use the Filter Platforms search box to quickly find a platform by family or model. Examplefilter stings: FAS6200, FAS6220.Select one or more platforms. The Choose Your Specifications pane displays. See an exampleStart with OS page below:4. Start with Platforms– This is not the default, but you can make it so by using the Preference buttonat the bottom of the page after you complete your configuration. 12This option works in a similar
